While out in the forest, he happens upon a capsule machine standing under a sacred tree. Purchasing one of the capsules, he frees Whisper and is given the Yo-kai Watch, allowing him to see and befriend Yo-kai, as well as summon them into battle.

He helps Nate understand the Yo-kai World and its interactions with the human world. Whisper claims to be very knowledgable about the Yo-kai, but actually relies heavily on a tablet computer called the Yokai Pad (妖怪パッド, Yōkai Paddo) to look up information on the Yo-kai Wiki (妖怪ウキウキペディア, Yōkai Ukiukipedia). He often dismisses Nate's suspicions that a Yo-kai is involved with mysterious occurrences in his life, only to be proven wrong almost instantly. Following an incident with the Yo-kai Watch Type Zero, Nate can switch between the different Yo-kai Watch models by putting his arm inside his mouth. Whisper always ends his statements with "Whis" (ウィス, Wisu). In Yo-kai Watch Busters, he is revealed to be a Slippery Tribe Yo-kai. In the anime, it is revealed he is secretly a Yo-kai named Whisbe (Shittakaburi (シッタカブリ, from shittakaburi (知ったかぶり, "know-it-all")) in Japan), whose belches cause people to claim to know all about things when they actually have no idea.

He has since become a residual haunting and possesses people to make them cross the street without waiting for the signal so he can make another failed attempt to fight the cars to avenge his death. When Nate believes that Jibanyan is brave for his actions, Jibanyan is surprised and overwhelmed with joy, forming a friendship with Nate. He later ends up staying at Nate's house, where he often spends his time eating chocolate bars or worshipping his favorite idol group, Next Harmeowny. Jibanyan had initially assumed that Amy called him lame for dying, but after being sent back in time by the Yo-Kia duo Kin and Gin, he learns that she was actually referring to herself, as Rudy's death was really the result of saving Amy from getting hit by the truck as she crossed the intersection to meet with her friends. Jibanyan can transform into different Yo-kai under certain circumstances. While possessed by Roughraff, Jibanyan is turned into the bōsōzoku-inspired Baddinyan who thinks he is doing bad things, but is not that effective in scaring Nate. When he gets a cold, he becomes Togenyan (トゲニャン), turning green and growing cactus-like spikes that shoot out whenever he sneezes. In Yo-kai Watch 2, he can fuse with Whisper to create Buchinyan (ブチニャン).

List of Yo-kai[edit]

Yo-kai are spiritual beings in the world of Yo-kai Watch, based on various Japanese mythological spirits and figures. They are divided into eight primary tribes: Brave, Mysterious, Tough, Charming, Heartful, Shady, Eerie, and Slippery. The Kaima Tribe is introduced in Yo-kai Watch 2. In Yo-kai Watch 3, a ninth main tribe "Hagure" will debut. Each tribe has its own special song that is played when the Yo-kai is summoned. With some exceptions, Yo-kai are invisible to humans who do not possess the Yo-kai Watch, though they wear put leaiads which disguise themselves as hsehmans. The Yo-kai are listed below based on their numbering in the games' Yo-kai Dictionary (as of Yo-kai Watch Busters: Moon Rabbit Team), while those with fictional character biographies and casting information have made appearances in the television series. Where available, names from the English games, North American English dub, and the North American English manga are on the right while the original Japanese names are on the left.
